days end

This didn’t come out quite as nicely as I’d hoped. I didn’t have time to keep experimenting with the settings because a)the sun was going down, and b)I had to go to the store. I got the clouds to show up. That pleased me. I’m really starting to see how manipulating the camera settings makes such a difference in pictures.

I was reading an article earlier and clicked a link that I thought went to a different article. Instead it took me to a website for the flat belly diet. I sat there and watched the video outlining their diet plan. I don’t know why I did, I must be completely out of willpower, or increasingly desperate. They talked about how certain foods you eat raise your blood sugar and put you into a fat storing mode, things like cereal, bread, pasta. Those, and processed foods were their foods to avoid. I can get behind the processed food business. I’ve been thinking about all the crap that is available to eat, things that are made to simulate other foods (like mashed potatoes) and wondering why not just do the real thing, because not eating all of those chemicals and stuff alone is healthier. Maybe even juicing my own oranges instead of buying the “fortified” kind. No its not quicker, but better in the long run. What it comes down is to I’d rather know what I’m eating than be eating shortcut mystery foods. Maybe I’ll try avoiding the pasta bread cereal too and see if that helps. I need to eat more fruits and veggies, really, and I definitely need more protein in my diet. Really, I just need to eat because honestly, I usually eat one meal a day, and maybe a snack. That’s not helping me lose weight or be healthy. Still, I won’t be spending $99 on the flat belly diet plan.

It just gets confusing, because there are so many “expert” opinions on what’s good and what’s not. Some of it works for some people, other works for others, so you still have to figure out what’s going to work for you, and it especially better work with your lifestyle too.

My dad has an early morning appointment at M.D. Anderson to meet this doctor he’s been referred to for possible surgery. I have to get up early and take him. At least taking him I can find out what’s going on because I go in to talk to the doctor with him. Good thing I have my knitting to take to amuse me.

  1. Sending warm wishes for your dad’s appointment. Hopefully whatever is up is fixable and he’ll cooperate.

    I am loving your 365 pictures so far. Every year I say i want to try this and every year i forget. Maybe next year!
